The Strange Power (Dark . .has been added to your Cart. The Strange Power is an intriguing but a bit slow start to the Dark Visions Trillogy. I probably should be continuing L. J. Smith's The Vampire Diaries series but I decided to take a break from that.

The Strange Power (Dark . This series was a nice chance of pace. I really enjoyed the characters and am curious to see what happens next. This series and all her others are much better.

The Strange Power, . Part of Dark Visions series by L. Smith. No one ever invited the witch; no one thought that Kaitlyn, the lovely, spooky girl with the strange eyes, would want to go. And I don't care, Kaitlyn thought, her reflections coming around full circle. This is my last year. 2. Anna looked up from beneath the glistening raven's wing of her dark hair.

This might be the only bind up of LJ Smith's that I haven't read yet, and this beginning book was so good that I'm wondering why it's taken me so long to get round to them!

But what was strange was what was underneath the web, so close it was almost touching. A series of long wriggles for hair-and then the itch, the urge, the need in Kait's hand ebbed away. She let out her breath. Wide, round, heavy-lashed eyes. As Kaitlyn stared at it, she suddenly felt dizzy, as if she were falling. That was all. The child in the picture must be a girl, with all that hair. A pretty little girl with wavy hair and a spiderweb on top of her face. Something was going to happen, involving a child and a spider.

They said she had evil eyes.…

Eyes that saw what was not meant to be seen.

Kaitlyn Fairchild was frightened by her uncanny talent, by the prophetic drawings that isolated her at school. Until she was invited to California, to attend the Zetes Institute with four other psychically gifted students, in return for a college scholarship. It was a chance to begin again, to belong; a great adventure, with the promise of romance…with Rob, irresistible, yet strangely innocent…with dark, enigmatic, Gabriel. Until they learn the truth about an experiment that threatens their sanity, and their lives.

All they have is each other and the perilous psychic link that can save—or destroy—them all.…

Bo-ring. Kait is a typical L. J. Smith heroine, in the sense that, when offered somethingamazing, beyond her wildest dreams (in this case, a year at a Californian psychic institute and an obscene amount of cash) shetimidly refuses, supposedly only thinking about the welfare of others ("but what about my dad?"). Oh come ON. It's a clear excuse to avoid making any decisions for herself or taking risks. Fortunately, in this book she eventually bites and goes off merrily to California, where she of course meets two gorgeous guys (one "good," one "evil" - *another* trusty L. J. Smith cliche put to work) and discovers something fishy's going on, but of course only after using her *amazing* psychic powers. Nevermind the ridiculously obvious clues thrown at her throughout the book...I shudder to think of what life must be like for one so naive. So she *finally* answers the clue phone (of course, *she's* the one who figures it out - supporting characters are as dumb as manure in a lot of L. J.'s books, unfortunately), and the psykids try to split, only to be attacked by the bad guys. Gabriel (aforementioned evil-but-cute boytoy) gets zapped with the Dark Crystal, becoming a psychic vampire, thus insuring gratuitous sexual tension a-plenty in the later books, where Kaitlyn selflessly offers herself to him. The book finally ends with the kiddies running away, and Kait having a nice little heartwarming moment with Rob (the good-and-cute boytoy). Aww. Next. -Twilight
Of course I'll admit Gabriel is sexy! Owww, is he ever. And I liked the fact this is the first L.J. book where the so-called "bad" guy won. I hate how she always writes these totally blah "good" boys, and these sorchingly sexy "bad" boys, and the girl *always* goes for the good boy. Of course, winning Kaitlyn meant that Gabriel had to be "redeemed," by making amends with Rob, curing his vampirism, and generally turning into Mr. Wuss, but this is what happens to a lot of really great bad guys in books (I think the author does it to assauge her guilt over writing such a brilliant, popular character with so many perceived personality flaws - Anne Rice even did this to Lestat - though the fact that the majority of the fans absolutely loathed the book she did it in [Memnoch the Devil] should maybe give authors a message that we *like* naughty bad boys. ;). This is also the first one, I think, that has a hint of real sexuality in it - instead of writing scenes where the heroine practically has an orgasm from being kissed (*regular* kisses too, no tongue or anything), she wrote hot "energy-drinking" scenes and had Kaitlyn suggest that she "take off her shirt" to get Rob's attention. It would appear that L. J.'s characters are finally maturing, and I really like that. But the plot is still a little too goofy, and the characters still a little too shallow for my liking. Sorry. -Twilight
Kaitlyn has the ability to draw things that will happen in the future. There are others like her with different abilities and they are all brought together with the claim that, if they go through some tests, they will get full college scholarships.

Trust no one. Their promises are worthless. They learn a lot about the experiment people and one other, very strange person, Kaitlyn meets at an airport.

Learning these things, though, does not guarantee they will live long enough to do anything with their knowledge because some people, if they can't get what they want, will kill to prevent anyone else getting it.

Good read.
Tyler Is Not Here
I absolutely love the way that L.J Smith wrote this book. There are so many juicy details. I like reading about psychic powers and this really hit the spot! The main charactors get you really into the book and make you want to read more. The book is about a young girl who has been basically been set aside as an outcast in her school socioty, She longs for friends, although she is too proud to admit it. She has the power to see the futer in an odd way:she draws pictures of the event that is about to happen. She gets taken to an institute that will help her strengthen her powers, and there, she meets other people who also have psychic powers. She will end up falling in love and the rest is up to you to fiond out. I love how many great emotions this book brings up. The ending will make you feel emotions you didnt know that you had! I highly reccomend reading this book!
This is the second series by L.J. Smith that I have started. I think I am going to like it even more than "The Forbidden Game," if it continues to be as good as this first installment.

Kaitlyn has special psycic powers that have made her an outcast in her own town. Suddenly she is invited to a special school in San Francisco for teenagers just like her. Kait is finally happy surrounded by friends and in love. But turns out this school is not what it seems...

I loved all the characters in this book, especially hot guys Rod and Gabriel. Special powers were great. The book is fast paced and engaging, although maybe a little too short for my taste.

I am looking forward to reading the next book. L.J. Smith is really proving to be a great YA fantasy writer.
